reprinted from Arutz 7 1/10/2012 Like a historic seal of approval to Jews' claims to their Land, a stamp with Menorah is found in Akko. by Gil Ronen Just two weeks after a Temple era seal was displayed to the public, archeologists continue to dig up breathtaking proofs of the ancient and never-severed connection between Jews and the Land of Israel. This time, the find is a 1,500 year old tiny stamp discovered near the city of Akko, bearing the image of the seven-branched Temple Menorah. The stamp was used to identify baked products and probably belonged to a bakery that supplied kosher bread to the Jews of Akko in the Byzantine period. The ceramic stamp dates from the Byzantine period (6th century CE) and was uncovered in excavations the Israel Antiquities Authority is currently conducting at Horbat Uza east of Akko, prior to the construction of the Akko-Karmiel railroad track by the Israel National Roads Company. This find belongs to a group of stamps referred to as "bread stamps" because they were usually used to stamp baked goods. According to Gilad Jaffe and Dr. Danny Syon, the directors of the excavation on behalf of the Israel Antiquities Authority, "A number of stamps bearing an image of a menorah are known from different collections. The Temple Menorah, being a Jewish symbol par excellence, indicates the stamps belonged to Jews, unlike Christian bread stamps with the cross pattern which were much more common in the Byzantine period." There were no Muslims in the region at the time - because the Quran had not yet been written.

No need to dig them up when they're on the surface.

I take exception to this:
"...never-severed connection between Jews and the Land of Israel."

The connection was severed when God brought in the Assyrians and Babylonians to expel both Israel and Judah from the land, on account of their sins. It is a major theme of the Old Testament prophets, but most people today seem to gloss over it and/or ignore what God has already clearly stated on the subject. Anyway, most of the Jews now in Palestine are descended from people who were never inhabitants of that land.

Using these old artifacts to bolster excuses for oppressing Arabs and Palestinians is obscene.

You seem to be of the opinion that everyone was exiled. I can assure you not everyone was exiled. It's impossible to get every person. The Israel of today is less than 1/2 of what it was back then and Petra has always been a place of refuge for them in troubled times.

Unless ofcourse you subscribe to fairy tales of talking rocks telling people "there's a jew behind me kill him!".

Well, I did say "most" did I not? Of course I know that some Israelites were left in the land, and it says so in the Scriptures. Those few folks did not figure importantly in history or prophecy. The Jews who have come in today are widely seen as a fulfillment of prophecy, but it is a sham. It's a matter of knowing who's who, who went where, and what they represent in prophecy. In this case, the Jews are largely (excepting the Sephardic Jews, who do have some Israelite descent) descended from the Kazars, a branch of the Turks. They spread into eastern and central Europe after the Rus broke up their empire. Then, in modern times, they "returned" to Palestine. In prophecy, they represent the bad figs of Jeremiah 24.

The two olive trees, on both sides of the menorah, represent the beauty of Restored Israel with David their King, when both kingdoms, Israel (the northern kingdom headed by Ephraim) and Yahudah (the southern kingdom), now scattered, are brought back to the inheritance of their fathers, on the mountains of the Promised Land, Eze. 37: 15-25. Israel shall grow like the lily, and lengthen its roots like Lebanon. Her branches shall spread. Her beauty shall be like an olive tree, Hosea 14. Ezekiel's vision portrays a physical fulfillment of that event.


The most important reality is that the two olive trees are symbolical of the two Witnesses or "Anointed Ones, who stand before the Elohim of the whole earth", Zecha. 4: 11-14; the two Cherubim by the Mercy Seat, Exod.25: 18; they shall witness for 3 1/2 years, Revelation 11: 3. This leads us to Paul eschatological observation of the the fact that a wild olive is grafted onto the good olive tree, Rom. 11: 17, whereby Yahweh is bringing two people together, one that was called by His name, Israel, and the other that was not part of the covenant, the Gentiles, Is. 58.

The golden menorah represents the only sign or symbol of Yahshua's Assembly given in the Bible, Revelation 1.

For instance - the Messianic Hebrews do not combine a Cross with the star of David, a Menorah, and a Christmas tree. Further explanation on the Christian Cross is given at Yahshua's People.
